Facts about Bask

Bask is a mature, little guy who knows what he wants. He likes getting outdoors and enjoying freedom from a crate or kennel. He was returned to AHS as he was not a good match for a previous owner who had several other dogs. Bask wants to be the man in charge who gets all of the attention. He's just a big ball of white fluff with a brownish head and face--really quite cute. A nice, quiet home with no other pets would be the best for Bask. He can be a little cranky at times but once he feels comfortable with you, he'd like to stay by your side, maybe even relax with you in your lap. Bask is also an UNDERDOG, which means that since he has been a resident at AHS for more than 30 days, his adoption fee is reduced!!

About Atlanta Humane Society - Alpharetta

About Our Shelter...

Atlanta Humane Society (AHS) is a 501(c)3 tax exempt nonprofit (IRS Tax ID# 58-0685900) and the oldest private charitable organization in Atlanta, founded in 1873 following a visit to the city by Robert E. Lee. The animal charity was originally chartered to protect women, children, and animals and remained a child protection and animal welfare society for 79 years. AHS, now a widely recognized pet adoption center, clinic, and educational program provider, was originally located on Marietta Street and moved to its location at 981 Howell Mill Road in the 1930s. Atlanta Humane Society's Mansell Road Adoption Facility was opened in December of 2011 in Alpharetta.

It is our mission to prevent neglect, abuse, cruelty and exploitation of animals and to assure that their interests and well-being are fully, effectively and humanely protected by an aware and caring society.

Atlanta Humane Society places approximately 8,000 animals into forever homes each year. AHS is committed to finding homes for all adoptable pets. We do not euthanize adoptable animals, and there are no time limits for the animals once they are in our care. We only humanely euthanize those animals suffering from significant medical issues or that pose behavior concerns. We are proud to be a part of the solution to ending pet homelessness and overpopulation in the Southeast United States.
